The International Energy Agency envisages that advanced renewable fuels will contribute significantly to reducing emissions by increasing from 5% of total transport energy supply today to up to 30% by 2050. The promotion of renewable fuels offers clear benefits both for security of energy supply and for mitigating climate change. The main challenge for advanced renewable fuel production is to satisfy EU and global emission regulations while maintaining low cost and sustainability. Especially for heavy-duty road transport, where transition to electric powertrains will be challenging in the foreseeable future, advanced renewable drop-in fuels and a waste-to-wheel approach for innovative and sustainable fuel production, distribution, and use of renewable fuels as transportation fuel will be necessary to improve the EU’s energy security by reducing their dependence on liquid fossil fuels and natural gas. Thus, this Special Issue aims to encourage researchers to address the technological advancements that have led to the development of novel approaches in conversion and production of advanced renewable drop-in fuels from the perspective of the waste-to-wheel approach. We are looking for contributions in the following areas:
- thermochemical and biochemical methods for renewable fuel production;
- cost-effective methods of pre-treatment and processing of biogenic residue and waste for renewable fuel production;
- techno-economic and environmental analysis of advanced renewable fuels;
- renewable fuel supply, distribution, and storage;
- vehicle and engine performance and emissions using advanced renewable fuels.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
